  • Brand strategy, CRM and digital strategy experience would be ideal.
  • You don't need any data planning experience as the wider team is great at this stuff. It would still come in useful if you had it though.
  • We're looking for an experienced leader, to both lead on major brand clients form a planning perspective, but to also bring good leadership to your team (a team of 3-4 planners and senior planners), which you'll manage and guide, with the support of the Head of Planning who will be your line manager.

The company.

An award-winning, consumer-focused integrated agency with global brand clients and a world-class team. They're part of a bigger group but still feel like an independent agency in many ways. They have a truly great culture and all of the perks you'd expect from a top tier agency, but none of the politics or big egos.
